rebekah brooks, the former murdoch editor and british c.e.o. who moved in all the right circles. she went to the police station on sunday to answer questions and instead was arrested. brooks is now out on bail and due to testify tomorrow in front of a parliamentary committee along with murdoch himself and his son, james. and in a strange twist to this whole affair, one of the most public whistle-blowers, a man called sean hoare, who was a former entertainment reporter for the "news of the world" was found dead at his home this evening. so far, anyway, police are saying the death is unexplained but not suspicious. bob? >> schieffer: thank you very much, liz. liz palmer in london. in this country, president obama claimed some progress in negotiations to try to find a way to raise the debt limit and keep the government from defaulting on its financial obligations. the reason for the optimism was not all together clear but a cbs news poll out tonight reflects the political toll this crisis is taking. the public is split right down the middle over the president's handling of the situation, but
he's sorry for serious wrongdoing. and his british c.e.o., rebekah brooks, apologized, too. with murdoch's support, she toughed out almost two weeks of angry calls for her resignation. finally today she stepped down. but no display of public remorse by murdoch can stop the investigations under way. nine people have now been arrested, including a reporter and several editors. now, next week, on tuesday, we're going to see rupert murdoch, his son and heir apparent james, and rebekah brooks appear before a parliamentary investigation into hacking as witnesses. of course, the question to them will be "what did you know? did you know what was going on at the paper? and if you didn't, why not?" scott? >> pelley: thanks, liz. news corporation has a value of $41 billion but its stock has plummeted since july 1 when the scandal broke. it has lost $6 billion in market value so far. the resignation of les hinton, the c.e.o. overseeing the "wall street journal," was announced after the market closed today. elaine quijano joins us now the late-breaking developments. >> reporter: scott,

brooks. the murdoches could refuse. brook, a british citizen, can be legally compelled. and just as british parliament united in a call on murdoch to withdraw his bid for control of pay tv company bskyb, the wily media tycoon struck preemptively. he announced he was withdrawing his bid. today he surprised everyone with this statement from news corp, quote, we believe it's too difficult for the bid to progress and it is being read here as a humiliation for murdoch. we should also note that news corp's announcement came out at the precise moment that prime minister cameron was sitting down to meet the family of milly doweler that sparked this controversy in the first place. >> interesting timing indeed. what's the reaction to this rather new developmr%] at this point? >> well, many people say it doesn't change anything. murdoch can re-introduce his bid later potentially in the criminal and parliamentary inquiries will continue regardless into the alleged wrongdoing by his newspapers and there may be a debate should he even own the portion of bskyb that he already has. it's a scanda
